  • From volleyball star to TV anchor and reporter, to citizen journalism advocate — this has been the journey of Gretchen Ho, the anchor of “The Daily Serve” on ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, who now also serves as an ambassador for ABS-CBN’s “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo” (BMPM).

    Ho was officially launched as the celebrity Bayan Patroller of BMPM, the pioneering citizen journalism movement of the Kapamilya Network, in a bloggers’ conference held inside the ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City early this week.

    BMPM head Rowena Paraan said Gretchen was their choice to serve as the face of the movement in this year’s elections because of her reputation as a role model to the youth, from her time as an athlete to her entry to the world of media.

    “Gretchen has always been vocal about her concern for the country and her opinion on national issues. Young people look up to her and we believe she can help us engage the youth and encourage them to be vigilant especially in a critical time for the nation, such as the election season,” she said.

    As BMPM ambassador, Ho represents a 1.4 million strong army of Bayan Patrollers who will report about the 2016 elections. Asked on why she accepted to take this new role, she said she wants to help the youth determine their next leaders.
